REPORTS OF CITY OmCERS. 

The Commissioner of Public Works submitted 
a communication in response to an order passed 
Jane 1, 1885, to Jay a nine or twelve inch sewer 
in Ash street, from the Illinois and Michigan 
canal, 700 feet north. 

Aid. Cullerton moved that it be published and 
placed on file. 

So ordered. 

The following is the communication: 

Department of Public Works, I 
Chicago, june 15, 1885. 3 

To the Mayor and Aldermen of the City of Chica- 
go in Council assembled: 

(tENTLEMEN: In response to the order of your 
honorable body, passed June 1st inst., to lay a 
nine or twelve inch sewer in Ash street, from 
the Illinois and Michigan canal 700 feet north. I 
deem it my duty to call the attention of the 
Council to the facts and local conditions in- 
volved in the construction of the proposed sew- 
er. 

The Superint3ndent of Sewers reports that the 
locality has been surveyed, and after a careful 
consideration of the subject, the Superintendent 
deems the construction of the sewer as proposed 
impracticable for these reasons; 

First. The elevation of the ground along the 
line of the projected sewer is only nine feet 
above city datum. 

Second. When the South Branch Pumping 
Works are in operation to full capacity, the 
vpater in canal will be within one (1) foot of the 
surface of Ash street, thus preventing a flow 
from the projected drain-. 

Third. To properly drain the section of 
territory'including Ash street,it will be necessary 
to construct at least 200 feet of sewers of different 
sizes with their out-tiow in the west branch of 
the river. In addition to the above facts it may 
be a question whether or not the city has a right 
to tap the canal for the purpose. A plat showing 
the relative levels of canal and surface is liere- 
with submitted. 



The Department awaits the further pleasure of 
yoar honorable body. 

Respectfully, 

LeWitt C. Ceegier, 

Commissioner of Public Works. 

The Commissioner of Public Works submitted 
a communication in response to a petition to 
narrow the sidewalk space on \\ estern avenue

which was 

deferred to the-. Committee on Streets and 
Alleys, W. D. 

The Commissioner of Public Works submitted 
a communication in regard to a petition to raise 
the grade of Sedgwick street. 

Aid. Young moved to reconsider the vote by 
which the petition was referred to the Depart- 
ment of Public Works. 

The motion prevailed. 

Aid. Eisfeldt moved that the whole matter be 
referred to the Department of Public Works, 
with power to act. 

Aid. Young moved to lay tlie motion on the 
table. 

The motion prevailed. 

Aid. Young moved that the subject matter be 
placed on file. 

The motion prevailed.

lishing the sidewalk space on West Kinzie street

The motion prevailed. 

The Superintendent of City Telegraph sub- 
mitted a communication in response to an order 
passed May 25, 1885, relative to wires strung 
through vai'ious streets in the North Division. 

Aid. Manierre moved tiiat it be publisiied and 
placed on tile. 

The motion prevailed. 

The following is the CQmmunication. 

City Telegraph, I 
Chicago, June 15, 1885. \ 

To the Mayor and Aldermen of the City of Chi- 
cago, in Council assembled : 

Gentlemen: Referring to your order of May 
25, 1885; relative to wires strung througli various 
streets in the North Divisiim, with instructions 
to report what action lias been taken thereto. — 
Permit me to say that the (^hicago Teleplione 
Company liave increased the wires on the streets 
mentioned, but tliat course is not aggressive to 
the C/ity's interest, it lias been done for the pur- 
pose of grouping their various trunk lines with 
a view to convenience in connecting their under- 
ground system in that division the present 
season. 

The proposed work of the Telephone Company 
will relieve Wells and North Clark streets from 
the river to Chicago avenu(\ also Chicago av- 
enu, from Wells to State streets, of the poles and 
wires and take down extra wires strung on 
Superior, St Clair and Michigan streets. It has 
l)een customary for this Department to grant 
temi)orary facilities to the various telegriiiih 
companies to facilitate the underground work. 

Respectfully Submitt(Hl, 

John P. Barrett, 

iSuperintendcnf.

The number of books on our shelves has been 
increased during the year by 5280 volumes, mak- 
ing the total number of books now in the library 
111.621. . , , 

The library still occupies the same cramped, 
inaccessible, and unsafe quarters which we have 
so long desired to abandon, and which have had 
to be rented again and again for want of a proper 
permanent structure. For years the Board has 
expressed the fervid hope that Congress would 
dedicate th,e almost only suitable grounds for the 
erection of a permanent library edifice— Dear- 
born park; but despite all the efforts made by 
our senators and representatives; despite the 
favorable action of committees of Congress; de- 
spite the interest taken by prominent men and 
by the press: despite, even, the eloquence of our 
librarian whenever the subject of Dearborn park 
is discussed by him either in his reports or m the 
committee room of the Capitol at Washington, 
we are still almost as far distant from a realiza- 
tion of these hopes as we were years ago. _ 

But while we cannot point to progress m the 
direction 6t a large and centrally located library 
building, we are still enabled to point to an im- 
portant improvement in t!ie library facilities of- 
fered to the people of Chicago. During the past 
year four delivery stations have been established 
in different parts of the city, in addition to the 
two stations established last year. More than 
sixty-five thousand books were issued from 
these stations, and as the issues from the central 
library have increased at the usual ratio, it is 
plain that sixty-five thousand useful books have 
been read which would have slumbered upon the 
shelves, had it not been for the establishment of 
these staticms. Who can calculate the immense 
benefit derived from the study of these sixty-five 
thousand volumes? How many noble ambitions 
have been kindled, how mucli practical kn<jwl- 
edge imparted, how much dissipation prevented 
can never be accurately ascertained. But one 
fact is beyond doubt: these volumes have done 
immeasureably more good in the hands of the 
people tlian they would liave done on the shelves 
of the library. The main object of a free public 
library is to supply valuable literature to the 
poor; to the busy hiborer and mechanic and tlieir 
families; to tlie hard-worknd men and women 
wlio toil from sunrise to evening, and who have 
no time to draw books from the cratrai library. 

The rich can atford to buy all the books they 
may dpsire; but if our book treasures are to be a 
blessing for the poor, they must be made access- 
ible to them. This great object, the (!st.;iblish- 
ment of delivery stntions, ftnd finally of brancli 
libraries, is alone able to accomplish fully, and 
their increase IS therefore of imperative necrs- 
sity, if thelil)rary, supported by (he taxes of the 
wtiole people, is to benefit all alike, nor only the 
favored few, but the great masses of our popu- 
latnm. 

During the last year the Board of Directors 
labored earnestly to r)erfect the discipline of the 
library service. These efforts were largely stim- 
ulated by the discovery of the loss of a great 
man.y books caused by the madness of a bj blio- 
inaninc. and of small dei'alcations committed by 
one of the employes. The government of the 
public library is by law ( ntrusted to the Board 
of Directors and not to tiio enii)loyes; and it is 
not ..nough that the Board sliould meet at stated 
intervals simply to ratify the acts of tlu'se em- 
Ijloyes, ai)parently always regular. Tlie library 
assistants have been held to a sti'icter account- 



ability, their work has been more carefully 
scrutinized, and in that way several important 
reforms of the working machinery of the library 
have been instituted. 

The Public Library is steadily gaining in im- 
portance through its increase in books as well as 
thrcmghthe increase in the use of these books. 
Its value as an educational factor is beyond 
question. It should, therefore, receive the most 
cordial support and assistance on the part of 
your honorable body.

REPORTS OF OITY OFFICERS. 

His Honor submitted the following message: 

To the Honorable, the City Council of the City of 
Chicarjo: 

Gexti^mex— In completing my third and en- 
tering upon my fourth term' as mayor, it affords 
me pleasure to convey to you assurances of the 
continued prosperity, escellent credit, and high 
standing of the m.unicipality. It goes almost 
without saying that never in the history of Chi- 
cago has its administration been as fiercely as- 



sailed by partisan newspapers and politicians as 
during the past few months, but fortunately, the 
motives of these attacks have been divined by 
the thinking masses to such an extent that the 
effects have been to only temporarily injure the 
fair name of our city. The shafts, pointed and 
poisosed by selfish interests, fell harmless at the 
feet of a party conscious of right, and fidelity to 
the interests of the people, and the outside 
world has come to recognize the fact that the cit- 
izens of Chicago can rise superior to petty malice 
and renew their confidence ia an administration 
whose policy has been persistently in the direc- 
tion of honesty and economy. It has been re- 
markable that while the bitterest denunciations 
have been hurled at the head of the administra- 
tion, the partisan papers have been forced 'to 
concede great merit in the heads of each and 
every department of the city govern ment. They 
have constantly spoken of one or another 
of these heads as performing their duties admir- 
ably, thus evincing their ignorance or forgetful- 
ness of the fact that the I\J ayor performs few 
duties himself, but runs the city through his sev- 
eral appointments. 

The people, however, have been able to read 
between the lines and to do justice. They recog- 
nize that the adm.inistration has been honest, 
painstaking, and economical. But, as I sa.id, the 
fair name of the city has been thoroughly estab- 
lished, and outside people who had been tempor- 
arily alarmed over newspaper reports of riots, 
mob violence and general lawlessness, have had 
their eyes opened to the utter groundlessness o£ 
these reports, and their faith renewed over the 
general peaceable character and disposition of

ouv inhabitants. Nothing can better illustrate 
this renewed (jonfidence tlian the report of the 
bank clearances of Chicago, These clearances 
are the thermometer of the commercial prosper- 
ity of a city, and, as we all know, nothing so 
aftects business investments, enterprise and 
credit, as a widespread fear of general lawless- 
ness. During the heat of the late municipal 
campaign, when political orators were inflaming 
the people with the most false assertions, the 
bank clearances for the week ending March 28 
showed that there was in this city a decrease of 
19.1 per cent, as compared with the correspond- 
ing week of the previous year, while for thp 
week ending April 25, the clearances had in- 
creased 5.1 percent.; or. to more pointedly indi- 
cate the variation in the commercial situation, 
while the clearances amounted to $33,771,000 for 
the week ending March 28, they rose to $-t3,525,- 
000 for the week ending April 25 a gain of $9,- 
751.000. So far as the financial credit of the city 
was involved in the contest, it remained intact. 
Financial men throughout the country have 
come to regard the management of the finances 
of the City of Chicago as one of the best among 
the cities of our land, and so long as our obliga- 
tions are met as promptly in the future as in the 
past, no venomous assaults upon the administra- 
tion can in the least affect the city's credit. The 
Comptroller has fully set forth in his annual re- 
port the operations of his department, and it 
will therefore be unnecessrry for me to more 
than allude to it and refer you to its detailed 
statement of the city's finances. A reference to 
it will show that the debt per capita of this eity 
is the least of- any of the thirteen leading cities 
of the country, and that during the year ending 
Dec, 31, 1881, over fifty miles of buildings were 
erected at a cost of $20,689,000, or $3,189,000 more 
than that of the previous year. 

The sanitary condition of the city will compare 
favorably with that of any other large city. The 
winter has been a long and very severe one, and 
there were necessarily lai'ge accumulations of 
garbage in some localities. 

With the appropriation made by your honor- 
able body the work of removing the accumula- 
tions has been and is being rapidly prosecuted 
under the Department of Health as well as the 
Department of Public Works. With these pre- 
cautions there need be no apprehenpion of any 
general epidemic. The fact that the city shows a 
less annual death rate than any other city in 
proportion to population ought certainly make 
Chicagoans feel more secure than people in other 
metropolitan cities. 

The creation of the department of tenement- 
house and workshop inspection a few years ago 
was a wise measure, and the work performed by 
it has all tended to ptxt these places in excellent 
sanitary conditi(m» Overcrowding and defective 
ventilation have been obviated, and tlie wage- 
workers placed in less jeopardy of their liealth by 
a foul atmosphere. This cliaractor of work and 
inspecticm will continue to be pushed witli in- 
creasing energy, it may be claimed to have been 
a Chicago invention— indeed, the invention of 
this administrati(m. Proud of what it has done 
for the maimal laborer, we hope to carry it on- 
ward to perfection. 

The Police Department has been ably and ener- 
getically managed. The report of its superin- 
tendent shows that the police have rendered good 
service in the suppression of crime and lawless- 
ness. The total number of rests for the year 
ending December 81, 1881, was 39,131; in 1883, 37,- 
187; in 18823, 2,800, and in 1881, 31,713. Tlie total 
value of property re))()rted stolen for the past 
year was $149,837; in 1883. .|;U1,8()2; in 1882, $121,- 
929; in 1881, .lii 147, 141. The value of proportv re- 
covered in 1881 was $112,943; in 1883, $'90,792; in 
1882, ;|i91;2t)5;in 1881 , $118,508. The patrol wagons 
responded to 23,921 alarms, made 14..521 arrests, 
attended 1,188 fires, and traveled 5(),087 miles. 
This system is being extended, and has proved 



itself a' most valuable adjunct of the Police 
De]>artment. In fact, if this administration h!ui 
no other hold upon the popular estimation, the 
invention and perfection of the police-patrol 
system should entitle it to the gratitude of our 
people. 

The Fire Department has also admirably looked 
after the property interests of our people. The 
number of fires during the past year was 1,278; the 
valuation of the property involved amounted to 
$22,685,601; insurance involved, $12,048,683; es- 
timated loss by fire, $968,229; average loss by fire 
,$756; loss per capita of city's population, $150. 
The increase in the number of alarms attended 
over that of the previous year was 177. The de- 
partment also attended to 37 alarms outside of 
the eity limits. The result of the faithfulness 
and vigilance o^ the department has been to keep 
down the loss to a minimum, and a comparison 
with the returns of other cities will show that 
Chicago has a fire force unequaled by any in the 
world. 

The Department of Public Works has rendered 
excellent and efficient service in carrying forward 
public improvement. Its work has covered a 
large territory where improvements have been 
needed by the constant increase of population, 
and the upbuilding of large vacant tracts of prop- 
erty and the future growth of the city will call 
for still further improvetnents, which the depart- 
ment, under your guidance and directions, will 
fully meet. But for the immediate future there 
are two things that seem to me to be essential to 
meet the wants of the people of the city and the 
needs of property-owners along the river. The 
first is the construction of two or three bridges 
across the river, leading to the west division, of 
similar width as the Rush street bridge, so as to 
admit of the rapid transit of vehicles and other 
conveyances from one side to the other. The ' 
double-width bridge between the north and 1 
south divisions has been of incalculable advan- ' 
tage to the intramural commerce of the city in 
that direction, and any one at ail familiar with I 
the immense tralfio between the south and west ,1 
divisions will at once recognize the pressing ne- 'j 
cessity for a like advantage for the people on the i 
west side. 

I trust your honorable body will take the ne- i 
cessary steps to carry out this greatly-needed I 
improvement. The other pressing need is the 
purcliase or construction of a fire boat, to ply 
along the river in the emergency of a fire among 
buildings or other property contiguous to its 
sides. The necessity for such a boat has been 
frequently shown, but it was never more fully 
demonstrated th.an in tlie recent fire in the lum- 
ber district. The fire department did very ef- 
fective work, but hampered as it was by approach 
to it from one side, it can readily be seen that 
had its work been supplemented with that of a 
fire-boat, the damage would have been greatly i 
diminished. Most effective aid was rendered by 
one or two tugs during that destructive fire, and \ 
a good fire- boat would have prevented at least | 
half such destruction. You cannot now appro- ; 
priate for such a boat, but I have suggested that- '. 
the lumbermen advance a i)art of the money for j 
a boat, to be repaid them out of the next annual ] 
appropriation, and the Water Department could i 
(lel'ray a part of the cost, for tli(* boat could be 
used in winter for the i)rotection of the crib, by 
keei)ing the ice in the river and harbor away | 
from it. I would thei-eforo racommend thnt your L 
honorable body will act so as to give the desired 
protection to all the properly ewners ahmg the 
river, and that you will empower the (loinmis- 
sioner of Puplic; Works to secure a boat of the 
kind in (question. 

Undtu- the Department ;it tiie close of the year 
1878, or the commencement of the present ad- 
ministration, there were 651 miles of streets iin- 
])roved and unimproved within (he corporato 
limits of tlie city. Of this number 132 miles 
were improved -practically 20 per cent, of the

whole. At that time not more thau 15 per cent, 
of the pavements were in a passable condition. 
The total number of miles of pavements laid 
yach year from 1879 to 1884, inclusive, was as fol- 
lows: 1879, 6.83 miles ; 1880, 16.84 miles; 1881, 
•Z4:.52 miles ; 1882, 24.95 miles ; 1883, 22 49 miles ; 
1884, 34.52 miles ; total, 130,15 miles ; average 
each year, 21.69 miles. 

This statement does not include streets that 
lave been curbed and filled, which might prop- 
erly be considered as improvements, A very 
large portion of the streets improved prior to 
1879 have been repaired during the past six years. 
At the close of the year 1884, thera were 224 miles 
of improved streets within the city, or 34 per 
cent, of the whole, an increase in six years of 14 
per cenc, notwithstanding the large number of 
^^treets repaired, which does not increase the 
the total mileage. The total number of miles of 
sewerage constructed in the city since the estab- 
lishment of the sewerage system in 1856 up to 
and including the year 1878, a period of twenty- 
two years, is 294^4, miles. The total cost of these 
improvements, including catch-basins, etc, was 
s4,9«8,342.16, or §16,933.12 per mile. The number 
jf miles of sewers constructed during the past 
cix years was 119 V^, at a total cost, including 
oatch-basins, etc., of §1.390,250.04, or .§11,682.77 
per mile, making a saving over former years in 
tne cost of building sewers of .'i;5,250 per mile. 
L'he total number of miles of sewar in use under 
the city at this date is 414 miles. Of this number 
■:j4.5 per cent was built during the past six years, 
over one-third of the total number in place. 
Prior to 1879, the largest size sewer was 6^3 feet, 
internal diameter. ISince that time there have 
been constructed and in use a half-mile of seven 
foot, a half-mile of eight-foot, and two-and-a- 
jialf miles of nine-foot sew^^rs. 

The total number of miles of water pipe in use 
in the city for the year ending Dec, 31, 1884, was 
543 in round numbers, of which there was laid 
smce 1878, 126 miles. Last j'ear the new West 
Side pumping-engines were completed, at a cost 
of §351,236.97, which have a capacity of adding 
thirty million gallons to the water supply of the 
city daily, making the total capacity of the west 
division-works 130,CXX),000 gallons a day. The 
canal piimping-works were practically completed 
m 1883 at a cost of .3253,380.51. and have been in 
successful operation during 1884, with the result 
of giving clear water in the Chicago river. 
During the past year viaducts have been built at 
('entre avenue and Sixteenth street, at a cost of 
,1201,917.34: at Chicago avenue and North Halsted 
street, at a cost of .>>.S'323,li5.58; at West Twelfth 
street and Beach street, at a cost of $31,861.14; 
and at Erie street and the Northwestern railroad 
tracks, at a cost of §41,625.87 — making a total 
cost of viaducts for 1883- '84 of 8598,519.93. Two 
swing-bridges have been built, one at Ashland 
avenue, at a cost of sl8,319, and the other at Rush 
street, at a cost of §130,000. 

The number of miles of streets cleaned last 
year was 2,225, Last year I called your attention 
to the inconvenient nomenclature of our streets. 
Since then, the Postmaster of Chicago has no- 
tified you that great confusion arises from many 
streets having more or less near the same name, 
and asking that you take some action in the 
premises. I again repeat my recommendation 
that this entire question be carefully looked in- 
to. I suggest that North and South streets be 
called avenues; East and West streets; diagonal 
ones roads, short ones places or courts, and that 
a new system of numbering be thoroughly per- 
fected, so that any one would be able at once to 
locate, with approximate accurjicy, any number 
to be sought, 1 suggest that you pass a resolu- 
tion directing the Department of Public Works 
at once to prepare some plan for a thorough per- 
fection of some scientific system. 

Probably it would be well to appoint a special 
committee to look into the matter in connection 
with the department. 



I In conclusion, gentlemen, allow me to thank 
you for your kind courtesies shown me, both in 
my capacity as your presiding oificer and as the 
Mayor of the City; and with the incoming Coun- 
cil, I trust the relations may be as pleasant and 
cordial. 

Cabtek H. Hakbison, 

Mayor. 

Aid, Dixon moved that it be referred to the 
appropriate standing committee and published. 

The motion prevailed. 



The Clerk presented the report of His Honor 
the Mayor of persons pardoned from the House 
of Correction for the week ending July 11, 
1885, which was 

Placed on file. 



His Honor the Mayor submitted the following 
veto message : 

Chicago, July 13, 1885, 

To the Mayor and Aldermen of the Oity of Chica- 
go in Council assembled: 

Gentlemen, I herewith return without my 
approval the ordinance setting apart rooms in 
the City Hall for the use of the Public Library. 
My objections to this ordinance are two-fold: 

Section 1 sets apart the whole of th© fourth 
floor and intermediate stories (with the excep- 
tion of the Council ('hamber and the ante-room) 
and also other rooms on the third floor, I do 
not think that the Council understood when 
passing this ordinance that thej' were giving up 
all of this room, especially as 1 am exceedingly 
doubtful if the Library needs any such spa e. i 
am very willing and anxious to give to this pub- 
lic institution all that may be necessary, but I 
see no reason why we should give them so much 
room. My second reason goes to the very bottom 
of the ordinance itself. The preamble to the 
ordinance sets forth that a casualty has occurred 
since the passage of the appropriation bill in 
1885, hence the passage of the ordinance. The 
fact is no such casualty has occurred since last 
March, The books in the Library are today in 
no greater danger of destruction or damage by 
fire than in March last— than, in fact, they have 
been at any time for several years past. Some of 
the friends of the measure have asserted that 
there is a continuing danger and call it a " con- 
tinuing casualty," This argument might be 
used by an astute lawyer, on a jury, to deceive it, 
but it cannot and should not be used on a highly 
intelligent body of men, like this Council, If 
this ordinance can be passed under the Charter 
privilege, giving the right, in the event of a cas- 
ualt5% to appropriate money after the annual ap- 
propriation, then I can conceive of no condition 
of affairs that would not afford future Councils 
an excuse to pass any ordinance they mav wish, 
when money may be desired to be taken out of 
the Treasury. The Charter expressly says that 
no appropriation can be made subsequent to the 
annual appropriation, except when a casualty or 
accident shall have occurred subsequent to the 
passage of the annual appropriation bill. The 
Legislature clearly intended to guard the treas- 
ury from inroads upon it by appropriations 
passed throughout the year. I cannot consent 
to allow this ordinance to become a precedent 
for future extravagance. But, being very anxious 
to enable the Library Board to protect its prop- 
erty, I make this suegestion: There is in the 
Treasury upwards of §90,000 belonging to the 
Library funds, being hoarded by the Board for 
the purpose of erecting a library building at 
some future time, and with the expectation of 
annually adding to this hoard. Now, let the 
Ijibrary Board finish up as much of the upper 
stories of this building as shall be necessary, ex- 
pending to the amount of §25,000, or so much as 



July 13,] 



64 



[1885 



may be necessary, and then let the Ooiincil pledge 
itself to refund to the Board the money so ex- 
pended -whenever the Library shall be removed 
from this building. Let the Council do this by 
Bolomn resolution. This action being binding 
upon future Councils, the money thus expended 
will be just as safe to the Board as if it were 
lying idle in the Treasurer's hands. 

Herewith I hand you a resolution which, if 
you pass, will, I think, cover the ground, and 
will give the Board what it requires. 

Cabteb H. Harrison.

Armitage avenue was designed with a view of 
providing for the drainage of the territory

Permit me to add that the progress of the work

armies-for our noble Washington was only a 
ifeulenant-general General Grant was called 
by his fellow-men to be president of the United 
Btates, and he served for eight years as the chief 
magistrate of America. Then, when he laid 
down his official robes, as the representative of 
America, he was welcomed in every land m the 
broad circuit of this globe, and treated with the 
courtesies and consideration that had previously 
only been extended to emperors and crowned 
heads. Thus, this man is a unique figure-a great 
general, who fought for his country, and possi- 
blv saved it: the illustrious president, and the 
distinguished citizen, who is known m every 
land, on every sea, and in every clime; he is a 
figure unique in American history, and, as 1 say, 
we may well hope and earnestly pray that the 
c^reat leader who assumed the responsibilities and 
brough about the close of that mternicene strife 
will never need a successor m the work he per- 

*^Genm-'al Grant has for years been something 
else, more than a successful general and an ex- 
president. He has been the representative 
throughout this broad land of one grand idea, 
the idea that he proclaimed at Appomattox 
that the war was ended, and that this XJmon was 
absolutely cemented together, and this people s 
heart and sympathies and aspirations were in- 
separably linked. For months Providence has 
had laid upon this brave hero the withering 
hand of disease; the dread enemy of mankind 
has stood before him, sternly bidding him hence; 
and the eyes of all Americans and the world 
have been turned toward his home (and lately to 
Mount McGregor) and it has been asked day af- 
ter day, "how is it with our hero?" Suffering 
the world's sympathy went to him, and today I 
doubt if there is a single man or woman with 
any sort of humanity in the heart that does not 
feel a pang of regret. Southerners who had 
fought for the lost cause, northerners who had 
fought for the Union, have showed equal solici- 
tude and anxiety, and inquired anxiously and 
affectionately for him. Among his last callers 
was one whom he had met at Fort Donelson, 
where he gained his first glory. This man, whom 
our hero had conquered met the dying soldier- 
statesman at Mount McGregor, and together 
they shed tears and hoped for a perpetual union 
and friendship of the American people. 

His example has been to forever bury the ani- 
mosities in one eternal tonib. General, presi- 
dent and guest of nations, m his dying breath 
handing down the words of love and peace ! At 
Appomattox he pledged to his defeated oppon- 
ents a nation's amnesty. He died today. with 
that pledge upon his lips, a living promise of 
the nation he had helped to save. 

It is right that we should take action. What 
should be that action? A nation mourns, and 
the nation will be anxious to tread si ently after 
his body when it is laid m its eternal home, it 
would be impossible for Chicago to be fairly 
represented, or for her people to go. m a body. 
I believe that in every city m America, and in 
every hamlet, whenever his remains are carried 
to their last resting place a funeral cortege 
should move at the same stroke of the bell and 
march to do our dead hero homage I shall sug- 
gest to the people, if it be agreeable, that we at- 

''it^J propeftllat the people of this.great city, 
the capital of this great state, of which he was 
a citizen, should pay just tribute. 

I have taken it upon myself to telegraph his 
wife and children this message: 

Chicago, July 23, 1885. 
Mrs. Grant, Mount McGregor, N, Y. 

Madame: In the^namo of the City of (vhicago 
and on belialf of its Municipal Government and 
po 1 le 1 tender to you and to your children pro- 



found and most heartfelt sympathy. Yesterday 
General Grant, the honored citizen of Illinois, 
and of Chicago, was your loving husband and 
long-tried friend; today his name and. memory 
are the cherished property of the American peo- 

Cabteb H. Hakeison. 

Mayor, 

1 did this because I knew I was only anticipa- 
ting your wishes. I felt you would blame me it 
I did not do it immediately. We are met here 
now to take such action as you may deem prop- 
er. I want now to hear what you have to say, 
and 1 know the people of Chicago are anxious to 
hear what its representatives have to say. 1 also 
hope that what is said will be taken down and 
printed for future reference. 

Aid. Ryan arose and presented and moved the 
adoption of the following preamble and resolu- 
tion: 

Whebeas, This Council has heard with pro- 
found and solemn regret of the death of U . b. 
Grant, late commander of the American armies 
and President of the United Btates; therefore 

Resolved, That as the death of General Grant 
is a calamity affecting the entire Nation, and is 
so regarded by the people of (Chicago, tlie Mayor 
is hereby authorized to take such steps m behalf 
of the city on this occasion as may seem fitting 
and appropriate: 



Ald. Shoeey— I am sure the Council will re- 
spond as one man to the eloquent sentiments 
which have just been expressed by His Honor 
the Mayor. For almost a quarter of a century 
now General Grant, by his conduct, character 
"and achievements, has attracted the attention 
and regard of the world. He is an honor to his 
country and to the human race. He has added 
one more name to that select few who are in- 
scribed on the roll of the immortals. America 
has indeed during the last one hundred years acted 
well its part in giving to the world illustrious 
names; but I think it is the unanimous voice 
that among all the distinguished names there is 
no one that is now held, or will in the future be 
held, in more grateful remembrance than the 
name of him whose death we are called upon to- 
day to mourn. Illinois has reason to be proud 
as well as sad to-day. When impartial history 
shall have made up its verdict, the name of Grant 
will be associated forever with the immortal 
name of Lincoln. Around the name of Grant 
there is such lustre that any State or nation 
might be proud to call him its son. During most 
of the mature years of his life, he lived amid the 
fiercest contention, civic as well as military; but 
it needs not now the charity which comes with 
death and the grave to remove the asperity 
which attended this contention, for 1 believe 
there is not from the far pine forests of Maine 
to the prairies of Texas so much as one man un- 
der the flag of the Union anywhere who would 
not bring laurel to the grave of our dead hero. 

When a short time ago I was in London, noth- 
ing impressed mo so much or gratified me more 
than the evidences that were everywhere ap- 
parent of the care England takes of the name 
and memory of her illustrious dead. Everywhere 
there was something to indicate that England 
was determined to transmit from one gen- 
eration to another the glories of her heroes. Sd 
should it be here. Let this grand, simple and 
heroic life be perpetuated by every device of art, 
by painting, by sculpture and by monument; and 
by literature— the most enduring tablet that man 
can create— as a lesson for the coming genera- 
tions. Let his illustrious name and cliaracter 
be transmitted in undiminished lustre through 
all the coming generations.

^u^^^-- HULL.-I feel gratified that his Honor, 
the chiet magistrate of the city, has taken the 
initiative on this sad occasion, for one of the 
worJd s greatest men has paesed away. The death 
of (jeneral Grant is mourned by every man, w©- 
man and child throughout the civilized world. 
It IS not for every generation of men to see in 
person the man who is, and who will continue 
to be the colossal figure in the world's history. 
As children, they had read the history of the 
heroes of the revolution, but in manhood they 
were given the pleasure of not only reading, but 
ot gazing upon the greatest hero of the world 
Comparison with the heroes of other nations will 
not dim the lustre of his character, of of his 
achievements. Amid the severest struggle ever 
known for national life; amid disorder and con- 
sternation; he stood calm, a tower of strength. 
Although he is dead, his memory will be cher- 
ished by those who will take pride in doinc- 
honor to the silent soldier. 



Ald. Claeke.— I feel a hesitation in rising to 
address the Council on this oocasion. The life 
of b-eneral Grant is known to us, and in the 
world s history it will fill a brilliant page. More 
eloquent tongues will pay tribute to his memorv 
as a citizen and a statesman, but as a soldier I 
would like to say a word of him. 

^'^l winter of 1864, while I was serving on 
the staff of General Robinson, I met General 
Grant almost hourly, and then I was struck with 
admiration for his character as a man and a sol- 
dier. The life of Grant was so noble and chiv- 
alrous that future generations should be educated 
to emulate it. He was inflexible of purpose 
and when m battle an object was to be gained 
he bent all the energies of his great mind to se- 
cure it. From Donelson to Appomattox, there 
was not a single indication of hesitation in all 
his movements. An index of his inflexible res- 
<3l.^ti^n was found in his famous utterance, "I 
will fight it out on this line if it takes all sum- 
mer. Where could there be found, too, a man 
paore generous to an enemy? f know of no one 
m the history of the country more generous than 
U. b. Grant. What monument could man raise 
that would be as noble as the chapacter of the 
man himself? 

I remember one day in 1834, at Culpepper, Va., 
that it became rumored Grant was going to 
Washington on a special train. At the depot was 
another train, drawn up behind the special train 
which was to take home those soldiers who were 
fortunate enough to secure a furlough. Every 
hour counted to the men on furlough: they 
wanted to join their families as soon as possible 
and to remain with .them as long as they could! 
Grant's train had the right of way, and it was 
expected that it would reach Washington several 
hours ahead of the regular soldiers' train. The 
soldiers gathered on the steps and platforms of 
Grant's train. A young lieutenant, seeing them, 
said rather brusquely, "This is General Grant's 
train; get away from there." Grant, overhear- 
ing the order, walked up to the men and said 
Get on, boys; there is room enough for all. GenI 
eral Grant occupies only one seat in this train." 
His men could follow him anywhere, as long as 
he was m the front". During the time he was in 
command, the soldiers never suffered from cold 
or hunger. He attended to the comfort of his 
men more closely than any. other general. He 
connforted his family by the pa ient fortitude 
with which he waited for the end. His was the 
life that, we have reason to believe, merits the 
language or our Lord, "Well done, thou good 
and faithful servant." 

Ald. Hildketh,— We are present to pay a trib- 
ute to the memory of the greatest chieftain the 



world ever saw. I speak not now as an Alder- 
man, although I enjoy my right to address this 
body from the fact that I am a member of this 
Council, but as a private soldier who served un- 
der the command of the great soldier who has 
now passed away. It is my privilege to represent 
the soldiers here, to talk here for the men who 
fought in the war of the rebeUion. The news of 
Grant s death will go to the soldiers and cause 
them to stop and think over the achievements 
ot the great chieftain who, by his power and 
knowledge cemented this union of states. A 
soldier loves a soldier better than he does any 
other man on earth. Men who go to battle for 
their country's rights must be brave, and thev 
must therefore be kind and forgiving. The sol 
dier weeps when he hears of the death of his 
gallant commander. To night, as the soldiers re- 
tire to their beds, silent prayers will be sent up 
to the bupreme Architect of the Universe ask- 
ing him to recognize the Nation's chieftain, and 
to open the heavenly portals for him. As a sol- 
dier, General Grant has been aH that the Nation 
could expect; as a statesman, he has been the 
equal ot the most illustrious m.en this country 
has produced; and as a citizen he was always a 
staunch advocate of measures that he believed 
were for the good of his land. The people of 
this city cannot do a greater service to our coun- 
try s cause than by giving honor to the memory 
ot this soldier and statesman, General Grant 



Ald.^ Dalton -The life and career of Gen- 
eral Grant calls to my mind the beautiful 
stanza m "APsalm of Life," by Henry W. Long- 
tellow, one of America's greatest poets: 
"Lives of great men all remind us 
We can make our lives sublime. 
And, departing, leave behind us 
J^oot-prints on the sands of time.' 
The United States of today, with her sixtv 
millions of population; with her unequaled com- 
"''^•l^J'^e^' ™eral and manufactur- 
ing wealth; with her institutions of religion 
learning and charity, that stand a living, lastini 
monument to her greatness; with her con?fnent 
spanned by an iron pathway, and the most re- 
mote sections of her broad domain brought into 
close communication by the magnetic telegraph 
owes this great prosperity to the mel who 
framed the federal constitution, under the f os- 

f n'Tfvfol H °* ^^''""^ ^^^'^ ^«en permitted 
to live and prosper, and to the great men who 
have stood beside the cradle of that constitu 

enTVla'v^i^' '^"^^ °' adoption to the 'piSl 
ent day. America can point with pride to the 
tekl^r^^'^i her distinguished statesmen, her 
Franklin, her Jefferson Lincoln, Sumner, and a 
host of others. The death of General Grant 
to day adds another to the blazing galaxy of dis 
tinguished names that are burning like briah 
stars in the front of the nation's sky ^ 

r fio ''i"V?'''^^^V.^^ ^« ^ell as sad to day. 

General Grant, although born in Ohio, and re- 

?fwL^^T?'"^ New York, was a citizen of 
Illinois. It was here he spent the best days of 
his lue; and it was from this great State he was 
called forth to quell the rebellion and save the 
nation. It was his guardianship that saved the 
Union; and it was his sword that abolished hu- 
man slavery, and compelled obedience to the 
nacion s laws. In the ages yet to come, when 
the roll of those who aided in establishing and 
perpetuating our republican form of govern- 
ment shall be called, no name will be called be- 
fore that of General Grant, 



ih^' yisible signs of grief for 

the death of America's hero will in time dis 
appear, but the people will stiU continue to 



trrieve in their hearts for th© man who with his 
fword preserved the Union. The land which he 
loved, aid for which H^'^sl^ed every hi ng but 
honor will not forget him. His will ever be 
foremost among thi names of those who have 
rendered valuable service to the world, Grant, 
the humble citizen, the migj^y commander the 
wise statesman, will never be forgotten m the 
Und which, in times that tried men's souls, he 
served so faithfully and heroically.

REPORTS OF OITY OrFICERS. 

The Clerk presented the report of Hie Honor 
the Mayor of persons pardoned from the House 
of Correction, for the week ending August 8, 
1885, which was 

Placed on tile. 

His Honor the Mayor submitted the following 
veto message: 

Mayor's Office, ) 
Chtoago, August 10, 1885. 3 
To the City Council of the City of Chicago: 

Gentlemen— I herewith return to you with- 
out approval "an ordinance granting rights to 
The Equitable Gas Light and Fuel Company of 
Chicago." 

There are grave doubts as to the policy of 
granting rights to any gas company, however 
properly the ordinance granting sueh rights may 
be drawn. While conceding that competition is 



■* 



August 10, J 118 



calculated to and tends toward holding m check 
corporationB of thin nature, yet allnmst ac- 
knowledge that Huch comixrtitioii muKt be of a 
littalthy character. A competition wlrich Himply 
l)roduceH warfare between companieH ultimately 
ends in the larger corporations swallowing up 
tlui w(«iker onoH, and finally leaving the public 
attli'i m;)rcy of the cormorants. Hoalttiy com- 
petition pre-Bupposos two elements. First, the 
demand of the public for the competition: and 
BGCondly, capital willing to invest and to hold its 
own. Is there such demand now? And is capital 
looking for the investment? There are now 
three companies in the city supplying gas. One 
of them has gone into a receiver's hands, and it 
is said the plant will bo sold out to save the 
bondholders. Capital seeking investment would 
wisely take hold of this company's plant rather 
than to erect a new one. A fourth company will 
subject our streets to being torn up and force 
the people to the vast inconvenience such tear- 
ing up entails. Our streets are in many locali- 
ties well paved over the pipes of these three 
companies. A new company will seek the same 
streets, and the city will again be in the confused 
condition witnessed during the past two or three 
years. The Council should be careful not to 
subject the people to this without the best of 
public reasons. Some persons may make money 
out of such company, but the public will pay the 
cost. 

We hav^ no right to grant such rights to a 
company merely to help enrich any person or 
persons. We are the trustees of the people and 
not the mere friends of speculators. 

At present gas is sold by two of the present 
companies at one dollar per one thousand feet-, 
and by the other at one dollar and a half. These 
prices were fixed on the part of one at least of 
said companies, wholly without competition. A 
fourth company will so divide the territory that 
all will not be able to live and at the same time 
to furnish gas at these prices. The result will 
be that the weaker or new companies will be 
swallowed up and the strong companies will 
prey upon the public as of old. For when they 
spend money to destroy the new companies they 
will force the public to repay their outlay. 
Therefore, it is exceedingly doubtf al if you will 
not be betraying the public trust by passing this 
new ordinance. 

But if you differ from me in this, you will at 
least see the propriety of guarding tlie public by 
proper provisions in your ordinance. This brings 
me to specific objections to this ordinance, and 
you will pardon me for anticipating the objec- 
tion which will be urged, that I permitted the 
passage of the ordinance last spring without rais- 
ing such objections. The fact is, I did not consid- 
er the ordinance granting rights to Messrs. Ever- 
hart, Lomax and Clare of any real validity, and 
did not therefore consider it with the care I 
would have given had i believed it a valid ordi- 
nance. 

My objections are to these points. First. No 
locality is fixed wherein the works of this com- 
pany are to be erected. Gas works should be 
confined, to localities used for manufacturing 
purposes, ft is known that such works would 
greatly deteriorate the value of property devoted 
to residences. By erecting them in such locali- 
ties, individuals in the neighborhood would be 
ruined, and taxable valuations greatly reduced. 
This ordinance permits such works to be erected 
anywhere in the city, possibly along the line of 
railroads cutting some of the most desirable res- 
idence property in the city. I would suggest an 
amendment to Section 1, by adding these words: 
"Provided, however, that the gas works being 
provided for shall be located in localities most- 
ly occupied for manufacturing purposes." 

The present gas companies of the city are sel- 
ling gas at one dollar in the South and North 
Divisions of the city, and in the West Division 
at one dollar and a half. I can see no reason, if 



[1885.] 



you are desiring to help the people by bringing 
about further competition, why you permit the 
Equitable company to sell gas at one dollar and 
seventy-five cents. I suggest that you amend 
Section 8. by striking out the words, '"one dollar 
and seventy-five cents," in the fourth and fifth 
lines of said sectifm, and inserting in place 
thereof the v/ords. "one dollar," or "one dollar 
and tw 'nty-tive cents," or some other sum not 
higlier than one dollar and a half. 

My next suggestion is that you add to Ssction 8 
the following words: "The rights and privileges 
hereby granted are upon the express condition 
that such company, or its assigns, shall not ex- 
tend its pipes beyond the limits of the city, nor 
allow any connection to be made with its pipes 
so that gas shall be furnished to any consumer 
outside of the City of Chicago." 

I think you will readily see the impropriety of 
permitting our streets to be cut by mains to sup- 
ply the large suburbs now growing up around 
the city, which pay no taxes for the city's main- 
tainance. 

While I do not think any ordinance of this 
character should be passed at this time, yet, if 
you are still of a different opinion, and will 
adopt the amendments I suggest, I will permit 
such amended ordinance to go into effect. 

Caeter H. Hakrison,

The Commissioner of Public Works submitted 
a communication relative to improving streets. 

Aid, Young moved that it be published and 
placed on file. 
The motion prevailed. 

Department of Public Works, ) 
Commissioner's Office, > 
Chicago, August 10, 1885. ) 

To the Mayor and Aldermen of the City of Chi- 
cago in Council assembled: 
Gentlemen— Under the instructions of Sec- 
tion 594 of R. C., requiring the Commissioner of 
Public Works "to communicate to City Council 
any information or suggestions which he may 
deem important," etc., I would respectfully re- 
port to your honorable body that during the 
present season contracts have been awarded for 
thirty (30) miles of street improvements; of this 
eighteen (18) miles are at this date about com- 
pleted. 

I am of opinion that considerable more work 
of this character can be done the present season 
and at prices not to exceed the low prices now 
prevailing, notwithstanding the contractors will 
be obliged to wait for payment until the period 
for «ollection of assessments, one year hence. 
As the present contracts for street improvement 
are now drawing to a close, many men must of 
necessity be deprived of employment in that 
class of work. 

There is an unexpended balance to the 
credit of "Street Intersections," 

amounting to $46,229.67 

And a credit due same fund, for 
rebates on work completed and in 
course of completion amounting to ,$25,000.00 
Total available for City's portion that 
may be done during the present sea- 
son . $71,229.67 

This total amount represents the cost of city's 
portion of about six (6) miles of cedar block 
paving, in addition to what has already been or- 
dered by Council, 

Should your honorable body deem proper to 
proceed with any additional work of that char- 
acter, I submit two (2) lists of streets which 
certain proceedings have been taken looking to 
their improvement. 

List "A" comprises streets, for the improve- 
ment of which assessments have been confirmed 
but further proceedings thereon suspended by 
order of Council. 

List "B" comprises streets, the assessments for 
which are filed in court by order of Council and 
may be confirmed at the term in September next. 

List "C" are to come before said September 
term confirmation. 

I desire to say that action of Council, if any, 
must be prompt in order to carry on any of the 
work contemplated. 

Yours respectfully, 

DeWitt C. Cregier, 
Commissioner of Public Works.

The motion prevailed. 

REPORTS OF CITY OFFICERS. 

His Honor the Mayor, submitted the follow- 
ing veto message : 

Mayor's Officjs, | 
Chicago, September, U, 1886. f 
To the City Council of the City of Chicago : 

GbntiiEmen — I herewith return to you with- 
out my approval an ordinance passed Aug. 10 
last, imposing a license upon brewers, for the 
following reasons : 

Disclaiming any desire to antagonize the 
Council, I wish to state that I have been re- 
quested by Aldermen who voted for the ordin- 
ance to return it unsigned, so that they may 
further examine into the matter. 



This of itself would be sufficient reason for 
my present action, but I wish to state further 
that my own examination convinces me that 
this license is a double tax upon the brewers. 

When the high saloon license went into oper- 
ation, the brewers, of their own volition, re- 
duced the price of their beer 10 per cent., or 
80 cents per barrel. This reduction amounted 
to considerably more than $800,000 on the beer 
sold by them, and enabled the retailers to pay 
the $500 license. A very large number of such 
retailers would, but for this, have been utter- 
ly unable to pay such license, and thus the city 
would have lost a very large amount of the 
revenue necessary to run the municipal ma- 
chine. 

It is conceded by all thinking men that beer 
does far less harm to the people than alcoholic 
drinks, and it is claimed by many that cheap 
beer drives out the more harmful beverages, 
which it seems, in all climates like ours, will 
Inevitably be drank unless injurious drinks 
are afforded the thirsty. Indeed, a great many 
claim, and most plausibly, that cheap, pure 
beer is the real solution of the temperance 
problem. 

The reduction of 80 cents per barrel on the 
price of beer enables a saloon-keeper to sup- 
port himself without pouring down hot throats 
a poison called whisky, retailed in many sal- 
oons, which well-informed men believe fills 
our House of Correction with drunkards and 
is the parent of a large amount of our crime. 
Thus a separate tax on brewers, together with 
this reduction, becomes a double tax. Again 



September 14, ] 



134 



many saloon-keepers are barely able to sup- 
port their families by their trade and can lay 
up no considerable amount of m(mey, so that 
they find themselves utterly unable to pay the 
term license without assistance. 

I learn that about one-third of all the saloon 
licenses in Chicago, say to the amount of over 
$500,000, is advanced by the brewers. They then 
collect the amount so advanced, as rar as pos- 
sible, from their customers in small payments. 
This the city could not do. In veay many 
instances this advance is wholly lost. Thus, 
ag-ain, a separate tax upon the brewers is in 
this Avay a double tax. 

Ag-ain, while some of the large brewers 
would scarcely feel the payment of S500 per 
annum, there are many small brewers who 
can not afford to pay that amount. The $500 
license becoms a burden upon them, and 
makes them unable to compete with the large 
establishments. This will tend to drive the 
whole business into the hands of the hands 
of the great concerns, and thus make them 
vast monopolies. 

It is hardly a proper arg-ument that because 
the small saloon-keepers have to pay $500, 
therefore the brewers should not complain of 
such a tax. This is a specious argument, but 
the small saloon-keeper can surely gain noth- 
ing by the tax on those who produce what he 
sells, especiallj^ when such tax may drive the 
small brewers out of existence, and thus leave 
him wholly in the power of the great establish- 
ments. I throw out these sug-g-estions for 
your consideration, and ask you to consider 
them, and I further suggest that a more 
moderate license, which will enable the small 
brewers to compete more successfully with 
the larg-e ones, may be a proper thing- for you 
to enforce. 

If however, on further consideration, you 
still adhere to your views as expressed by the 
present ordinance, I shall yield to your .iudg- 
ment. Carter H. Harrison, 

Mayor. 

Aid. Colvin moved to reconsider the vote by 
which the ordinance was passed. 
The motion prevailed. 

Aid. Colvin moved that the ordinance be re- 
committed to the Committee on Licenses. 
The motion prevailed, 

His Honor, the Mayor, submitted a commu 
nication from Judge Lambert Tree, giving 
$700, from the interest of which a gold medal 
is to be j)r()cured and pres(jnted to the most 
valorous policeman or fireman, the communi- 
cation was accompaivied by a letter from His 
Honor, the Mayor, recommending the neces- 
sary legislation to establish the keeping of a 
"Merit KoH" in the two departments, in order 
to properly distribute the medals from year to 
year. 

Aid. Colvin moved that it be published, and 
referred to the Committee on Fire and Water. 
So ordered. 

The following is the communication:

in the protection of life and property in a 
great city that pass unnoticed, which, if hap- 
pening on the battle-field, wo ild secure the 
soldier a decoration or a brevet. It has also 
seemed to me that it might increase the effici- 
ency of both of these important forces of mu- 
nicipal government, if a gallant and meritori- 
ous action should occasionally be recog-nized 
in some distinctive manner. Having- this ob- 
ject in mind 1 venture to send you my check 
for seven hundred dollars with the request 
that after using- sufficient of it to purchase a 
die, which I assume will not cost to exceed one 
hundred doUai-s, from the interest derived 
from the balance a gold medal shall be pro- 
cured, struck from the die and conf ei*red upon 
the member of the Police or Fire Department 
Avho shall have performed the most disting-- 
uished act of bravery in the protection of life 
or property during- tlie year. That the Mayor, 
Comptroller and Treasurer of the city shall be 
ex-offlcio trustees of the fund and shall decide, 
or a majority of them, who is most justly en- 
titled to the medal; and for the purpose of 
preserving a record of the evidence of such 
actions during- the year, each force shall be re- 
quired to keep a "Merit Roll." 

The intrinsic value of such a medal is of trifl- 
ing importance, but the act for which it is con- 
ferred m-ay, in time, make it prized among- the 
men as a mark of distinction and merit. It is 
entirely in this view that I have thoug-ht it 
should be a permanent endowment. 

If you concur with me in these suggestions, 
and any legislation is necessary by the Coun- 
cil to carry out the purpose which is herein 
sought I feel assured that you will take the 
proper steps to bring- it before that body with 
your endorsement. 

I desire to suggest further that if no such 
meritorious case occurs as is herein contem- 
plated during- any year, the interest may be 
allowed to accumulate and that two medals 
maybe conferred in any succeeding- year, if 
the amount, of accumulated interest permit it 
and the circumstances justify it. 

I have directed a die to be made by Matson 
& Co. from a design which I think would be 
appropriate and shall request them to send 
yon a bill for the expense thereof payable out 
of the fund enclosed. 

Very respectfully your obedient servant, 

Lambkrt Tree.

The Clerk presented the report of his His 
Honor, the Mayor, of persons pardoned from 
the House of Correction for the weeks ending- 
August 15th, 32d, 39th, September 5th and 13th, 
1885, which was 

Placed on file. 

The Clerk presented the following-communi- 
cation : 

Offtce of City Clerk, ( 
September 14, 1885. f 
To the Honorable Mayor and City Council : 

Gentlemen— Since the date of your last ad- 
jovirnment, August 10th, 1885, 1 have I een ap- 
prized of the fact that the written records of 
the City Council, extending from the year 1837 
to June 31st, 1871, inclusive, are in an almost 
unintelligable condition, rendered so by the 
flre of 1871. 

It is quite probable that ere long they will 
become completely so. This is a matter of 
great importance, and in my judgment, meas- 
ures should be taken at once to copy the rec- 
ords, ere it be too late. 

I have therefore deemed it proper to bring 
the matter to your notice, so that you may take 
such action as you may deern necessary. 
Yours respectfully, 

C. Herman Plautz, 

City Clerk. 

Aid. Clarke moved that it be referred to the 
Committee on Finance. 
So ordered. 

The Commissioner of Public Works submit- 
ted a report, in response to an order of you'^ 
Honorable body, passed August 10, l>sfc5, for an 
estimate of the, cost of a viaduct on 13th street 
over the tracks of the C, R. I. & P., ana the L. 
S, & M. S. Railway Co.'s. 

Aid. Colvin moved that it be made a special 
order for the next regular meeting, at 8 o'clock 
p. M. 

The motion prevailed by yeas and nays, as 
follows:

The Commissioner of Public Works submit- 
ted a report, in response to an order of your 
Honorable Body, in regard to cost of repairs to • 
the Washington street tunnel. 

Aid. Clarke moved that it be published and 
referred to the Committee'on Finance. 
The motion prevailed. 
The following is the report: 

JSonorahle the Mayor and Council, City of Chi- 
cago : 

Gentlemen— In reply to the order of your 
honorable body in regard to cost of repairs to 
Washington street tunnel, I beg leave to re- 
port that the top of the present masonry of 
the tunnel is but fourteen (14) feet below city 
datum, which rarely gives more than sixteen 
(16) feet of water in the river at this point, 
hence it will be impracticable to add suitable 



material to the exterior of the arches for pur- 
pose of remedying present defects, even if 
such can be done wilhout removing the water. 

It is therefore believed that the most reli- 
able and effective manner of making perman- 
ent and necessary repairs will be to reach the 
top of the tunnel by aid of a coffer-dam. 

The work should be done mainly after close 
of navigation, darning half the river only, at 
one time, thus leaving the other half free for 
passage of vessels. It may be deemed best to 
carry on the work during two seasons, rather 
than close half the river during the season of 
navigation. 

The estimated cost of this course is as fol- 
lows: 

Coffer-dams.and their maintainance $30,000 00 
Removal of old work and rebuilding 

with asphalt and concrete 33,500 00 

Contingencies, engineering and su- 
perintendence 6,500 00 



170,000 00 

The estimated cost of extending the ap- 
proaches as contemplated by the order of 
Council is as follows: 

Lowering roadway on both ends to 
meet proposed new grade $ 65,000 00 

Construction of extended ap- 
proaches from Clinton street to 
Jefferson street, on West Side, and 
from Franklin street to Fifth av- 
enue, on the South Side 101,000' 00 

Covering the approaches as far as 
possible to preserve full width of 
street on line of proposed exten- 
sion 164,000 00 

Raising- grades on Clinton street 
and Franklin street to afford nec- 
essax-y head room in approach to 
tunnel.. 10,000 00 

For contingencies, engineering, su- 
perintendence, etc 30,000 00 



$360,000 00 

Add as above for repairs of tunnel. $ 70,000 00 



Total estimated cost $430,000 00 

These estimates do not include damage to 
adjacent property, an estimate of which can- 
not be approximated. I append herewith an 
outline sketch of proposed extension of ap- 
proaches. 

Respectfully, 

Dewitt C. Crbgier. 
Commissioner of Public Works. 

The Commissioner of Public Works submitted 
an opinion of the Corporation Counsel, in res- 
ponse to an order of your honorable body, 
passed August 3, 1885, directing the Commis- 
sioner of Public Works to proceed Avith the 
opening of the several streets in the South 
Division of the city, from Michigan avenue to * 
the Lake, between Randolph street and 
Twelfth street. 

Aid. Clarke moved that it be deferred and 
published. 

The motion prevailed. 

The following is the opinion: 

Office of the 
Counsel to the Corpora-j 
City Hall, Chicago, Aug. 

jD. C. Cregier, Esq., Commissioner of Public 
Works : 

Dear Sir— In your communication of Aug- 
ust 34, 1885, you ask my opinion as to your 
power and duties under the order of Council 
of August 3, 1885, directing you to proceed at 
once "with the opening of the several streets 



lATiON, y 
r. 39, 1885. ) 



September 14,] 



136 



[1886. 



"in the South Division of the city from Michi- 
♦'gan avenue to the lake, between Randolph 
"street and Twelfth street." 

You state that the extension of Jackson, 
Adams an* Moni-oe streets would involve the 
removal of portions of the Exposition Build- 
ing', and that all streets would cross the right- 
of-way of the Illinois Central Railroad Co. 

It title Council intend at this time to have 
these streets opened to the lake they have not 
gone about it in the proper manner. By reso- 
lution passed January 31, 1884, the Council 
authorized the Mayor to execute in the name 
of the city a permit to the Inter-State Indus- 
trial Exposition Company to occupy that por- 
tion of the Lake Front bounded on the north 
by the north line of Monroe street and on the 
south by a line parallel with and fifty feet 
south of the south line of Jackson street, at a 
rental of five hundred dollars per annum. This 
permit was made revocable at the option of 
the City Council. Under the resolution the 
permit was duly drawn and executed, and by 
its terms the Exposition Company is g-iven 
ninety days in which to remove its building- 
after notice of revocation. 

In view of the fact that three of the streets 
included in the ox-der of Council would, if ex- 
tended, run through what is now covered by 
the Exposition Building- it is apparent that 
action must first be taken by the Council in re- 
yoking- the permit given by the resolution of 
January 31, 1884, before your department 
would be justified in complying with the order 
of Aug-ust 8. 1885. 

Again, the City Council, by an order passed 
November 11, 1878, as amended November 33, 
1878, directed your department to g-rant a per- 
mit to the Illinois Central Railroad Company 
to erect and maintain a fence on the east line 
of Lake Park, from the Expositi(m Building 
to Park Row, with openings not less than 
twenty feet wide in what would be the centre 
of VaaBuren and Harrison streets and Peck 
Court, if extended across Lake Park. This 
permit was to oe revocable at the pleasure of 
the City Council, and if the streets are to be 
opened there should be an express revocation 
by the Council of the permit to maintain such 
fence or an order that openings in the same be 
left at the end of the streets to be extended. 

There are a great variety of questions which 
must arise upon the extension of these streets 
to the lake, but it is not necessary at this time 
to discuss them. I recommend simply that 
you report to the Council the fact that action 
on its part, as above indicated, is a pre-requis- 
ite to any action by your department. 

Respectfully submitted, 
(Signed) E. S. Winston, 

Corporation Counsel. 

The Clerk presented an opinion of the Coi'- 
^ poration Counsel "as to the right of the City , 
Council to compel the attendance of witnesses 
in the matter of taking the depositions" in the 
contested election case of Monear v. Doerner. 

Aid. Sheridan (5tb ward) moved that it be 
published. 

The motion prevailed. 

The following is the opinion : 

Ofitice of the 1 
counset^ to the corporation, >- 
City Haw., Chicago, Sept. 3, 1885. \ 
To The Honorable, the City Coimcil of the City 
of Clncayo: 

GentIjEmen:— Your Honorable body has re- 
ferred to me the papers in the contested elec- 
tion case of Monear v. Doerner, as Alderman 
3rom the Sixth ward, with the following re- 
quest for an opinion: 



"As to the right of the City Council to com- 
pel the attendance of witnesses in the matter 
of taking depositions.'' 

The question is a somewhat novel one in this 
State and my answer must be based mainly on 
the consideration of analogous principles. By 
Section 6, Article 3, of the charter, it is pro- 
vided, "The City Council shall be judge of the 
election and qualification of its own mem- 
bers," In the case of Linegar v. Rittenhouse, 
94 111., 308, the Supreme Court uphold this 
grant of power and declare that this clause 
leaves no jurisdiction in the County Court 
over the contest of seats in the City Council. 
The Court there say of cei-tain sections ot the 
election law: 

"These sections point but the mode, and we 
can see no great inconvenience,by a few slight 
changes, in rendering it entirely practicable 
for the City Council to try such a contest. The 
petition can be filed with the City Clerk, the no- 
tice can be given to appear before the City 
Council, and depositions taken and returned 
to the Council under these sections, and a trial 
had by that body." 

The City Council having, therefore, exclu- 
sive jurisdiction over the contest of election 
of one of its own members, it seems to me 
that the power in question necessarily implies 
the power to compel the attendance of wit- 
nesses upon the question. For if the Council 
cannot compel the giving of evidence by wit- 
nesses, their power of making a judicial in- 
quii'y in the matter would be a barren one. 
Hence, I conclude that a power is vested in the 
Council to compel the attendance of witnesses 
in such cases as a necessary eorrallary to the 
conceded power to hear and determine, as a 
gua^i judicial tribunal, the contest of election 
of its members. 

But there is no legislation and no method 
adopted by the Council to compel the atten- 
dance of wiinesses before the officer who takes 
the depositions. Section 1341 of the Code pro- 
vides that the testimony shall be taken "in the 
manner and as provided for taking de- 
positions in cases in chancery." But 
the statute which provides for the 
attachment of witnesses for refusing 
to attend and testify in other cases Is not 
broad enough to cover contests pending be- 
fore a City Council. I therefore conclude that 
legislation on the part of the City Council is 
necessary before there can be any compulsory 
attendance of witnesses in the case of a con- 
test of election. Such legislation should be 
general in its character and provide for all 
such einet'gencies. If it is the desire of the 
Council, I will endeavor to frame an ordinance 
which shall cover the subject. 

Respectfully submitted, 
F. S. Winston, 
Corporation Counsel.

The Commissioner of Public Works submit-

olution passed September U, 1885, directing 
the Commissioner of Public Works to report 
the unexpended balance standing to the credit 
of street cleaning fund. 

Aid. SWeenev moved tnat it be published and 
referred to the Committee on Streets and Til-

The motion prevailed. 

The following is the communication: 

Department of Public Works, ) 
Commissioner's Office, V 
Chicago, Sept. 23, 1885. ) 

Honorable the Mayor and Council, City of Chi- 
cago : 

Gentlemen— In answer to the preamble and 
resolution passed at the last meeting of your 
honorable body to report the unexpended 
balance standing to credit of " street cleaning 



\ SepiemlDei' 21,1 



fund." I have to report direct as to said reso- 
lution : 



There is on hand to credit of said 
fund $1T,589 12 

An expenditure for balance of year 
for labor and material at rate ex- 
pended during past season will re- 
quire approximately 51,882 93 



Showing an apparent deficit $34,393 80 



Last year the Department carried on work 
comprehended by the above fund until De- 
cember 11. I am of opinion we may continue 
work in same line full as late as above or even 
to end of year. 

Up to date there have been swept an aver- 
age of 345 miles per month. About twenty 
(30) miles of streets have been improved dur- 
ing past year, and although but few of these 
newly paved streets are at present cleaned, 
they are gradually being in eluded in the list. 

To more directly respond to the preamble I 
have to state that 

Section,!. Prom River to Harrison street 
and from the Kiver to Lake. 

Cleaned on average four times per month, 
60 miles. 

Sec. 2. All of the South Division lying south 
of Harrison street. 

Cleaned on average twice per month, 80 
miles. 

Sec. 3. All that part of the West Division 
lying between Lake and Harrison streets and 
east of Ashland avenue. 

Cleaned on average twice per month, 70 
miles. 

Sec. 4. All of the West Division lying north 
of Lake street. 

Cleaned on average once per month, 15 
miles. 

Sec. 5. All of the West Division lying south 
of Harrison street. 

Cleaned on average twice per month, 50 
miles. 

Sec. 6. All of the North Division. 
Cleaned on average twice per month, 70 
miles. 

If the amount of cleaning were increased as 
follows, the miles per month could be cleaned 
with benefit, as follows: 

Section 1. 8 times per month, 130 miles. 



3. 31/2 " " 100 

3. twice " 70 

4. twice " 30 

5. 3 " " 75 

6. 3 " " 105 



Making a total of 500 miles per month or 155 
miles more than has been cleaned during the 
past season. This at contract rate, viz : $35.00 
per mile, would cost for, say three months, 
$16,275.00. Hence if the cleaning were in- 
creased as noted above to December 31, the 
fund would stand as follows: 

At rate of past year, 345 miles per 

month $36,335 00 

Extra cleaning, as scheduled 155 
miles per month 16,375 00 

$53,600 00 



[1885. 



Amount that may be transferred: 

1. From unimproved streets, 

estimated $34,000 00 

3. From street permits 9,000 00 

3. From house moving per- 
mits 1,000 00 

4. From steam roller appro- 
priation 3,000 00 

5. Amount on hand 17,589 13 $53,.589 12 



Surplus at end of year. . $ 1,089 12 

Add labor and material for 
3 months, estimated 15,657 92 



Deficit $14,568 80 

In case the cleaning is carried on at same 
rate as during past year the account would 
stand as follows: 

Cleaning 345 miles per month $36,225 00 

Labdr and material for 3 months, es- 
timated 15,657 93 



$51,883 92 

On hand 17,589 13 



Deficit $35,393 80 

Or in other words cleaning of improved 
streets can be carried on at the past rate with 
the 'amount of transfers as above. 

Respectfully,
